be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at
, the constituents at home. there are plenty of democrats including majority leader harry reid who have the same basic concerns, and there is a concern about the gun laws like the assault weapons ban would be effective so that you will see the republicans will try to mostly strengthen the mental health aspects of this problem, and they will see, and watch very carefully to see what senators like alaskan senator mark begich and arkansas senator pryor and louisiana senator mary landrieu, and if they don't go towards the gun control side, then the republicans certainly won't. >> and jason, talk about that, because for harry reid, does it cause problem for him being in the committee and he being a gun owner and he being the senator from nevada, will that cause difficulty for him? >> i live in texas, and even here, a huge majority of people are here for closing the gun show loophole and bringing it into the fold here and half of the voters here in texas support banning the assault weapons. voters are speaking out in increasing numbers about doing something about this, taand the new york times is righ
to jack johnson. senator harry reid who hustled his way around nevada boxing rings before going to law school and getting into politics, joined with senator john mccain, massachusetts senator mo count, and peter king to introduce a resolution to pardon jack johnson. jack johnson was a legendary competitor that defined an era of american boxing and raised the war for all american athletics, said senator reid. his memory was unjustly tarnished, and it is time to recast his legacy. senator john mccain said we can never completely right the wrong perpetrated against jack johnson during his lifetime, but this pardon is a small, meaningful step toward acknowledging his mistreatment before the law and celebrating his legacy of athletic greatness and historical significance. senator cowan said jack johnson was one of the great african-american athletes, his skill and perseverance to get back up every time he was knocked down made him a champion in the eyes of the sports world and for those that like him pursued their dreams despite racial in tolerance. jack king said he is a trail blazer and l
contacted the senator, but if he truly is under a grand jury investigation, one has to wonder how long harry reid can allow him to stay even if it's temporarily whether he's going to have to end up stepping down temporarily as chairman of foreign relations committee. >>> if the first day of cpac was a look at the republican party's pu future, day two is a look back at the past. dominica nontenara has been sho soaking it all in. i know a lot weird hash going on with donald trump and an alleged press conference, but let me ask you, this is your fourth or fifth different cpac you've covered. describe the atmosphere this year compared to previous years. >> reporter: yeah, i think this is my fifth time i've been to one of these and, you know, it's just a lot different than it had been in previous years. most years it's a pep rally of sorts. people are really fired up for the folks that will be at this event. this time around, you know, it's not quite the same level of oomph, i guess you could say. it's just the energy is not quite there. but it could be because of how much bigger this place is th
trafficking and school security. but their fate now lies in the hands of senate majority leader, harry reid, given the obstructionism and bitter partisanship in congress, the future for comprehensive gun safety is uncertain at best. kerry, experts on all things washington. not that our whole panel isn't. but you know, the senate democrats are going to be the ones to look to as far as all of this. we know that there are several nra a-rated democrats a few of whom are up for re-election. max baucus, kay hagen, tim warner. haas your read on any kind of comprehensive reform laws getting through congress. >> i think the person to watch is joe mansion. in the process of trying to come up with a background check bill that will pass the senate and he has mark kirk, republican, on his side. but the problem with mark kirk is he's affiliated with the nra. >> an a-plus an f, make a c. he's f-rated. >> still not good enough for the red state democrats and the nra. mark baggage told joe mansion accordle to some of my colleagues, i like what you're trying to do, but you have to get a couple of a-rated rep
, several bills to come out of the judicialry committ committee, go to the floor, harry reid said every senator will have to take a vote on every one of those bills. that includes nine democrats from red states or purple states that are up for re-election this cycle. they're going to have to take very tough votes on that. it will be hard for them. if they don't have 60 votes and the democrats have 55 zmors and they lose nine of their own people? where are they going do get those from? the republican side? highly doubtful. to your point, the gop and nra naturally aligned. >> let's talk more about democrats like joe mansion, a great political story about how he could be president obama's best hope for piecing together a deal. how crucial will be it to have individuals like this who can bridge the divide, try to find some measures that can get bipartisan support from both sides of the aisle? >> listen, i think if you see a joe mansion sort of step up to the plate and go and say listen, we're going to do something on trafficking, we're going to do something on background checks. and we're g
. instead, it will get a separate vote on its own. but with lower hopes for success. senator harry reid says he made the move to avoid republican obstruction. >> i want people to have the ability to vote on assault weapons, mental health, safety in schools, federal trafficking, clips, everything. but i cannot do that until i get a bill on the floor. i want something that will succeed. >> something that will succeed. the rest of the country wants that, too. in fact, a majority of americans, 57%, support an assault weapons ban. but apparently some in washington think that's not good enough. nearly 2,800 people have been shot and killed since the newtown tragedy. 2,800 reasons for our elected officials in washington to show some political courage. the time is now. americans want to move forward. lawmakers in both parties should move forward with the rest of the country. joining me now are mia malika-henderson and margie omar ra. thank you for your time. >> malika, what's behind this on assault weapons? why did it happen? i'm not sure i agree with this. >> yeah. i think you heard senator reid sa
: okay. >> caller: you just talked about harry reid agreeing to reform filibustering, and i'm wondering how harry reid feeling about that handshake that he gave him over that. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. >> caller: but what i really called about is can you and all of the other people that do what you do stop talking about these republican crises and start getting into people's heads that if we don't attack these republicans for not doing it -- it is them shutting up that would stop these crazies. >> stephanie: all right. we just mentioned it. there you go. with a bell. >> yes. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: and mitch mcconnell is a bag of pus. okay. jim in chicago. hello, jim. >> caller: yeah hi stephanie. love your show. you guys crack me up. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: for sure. the democrats have to get with it and create a policy that's going to take -- bring the voters to the polls because the republicans answer is tax breaks. i.e. -- it has all been we're going to cut your taxes, where the democrats have to come one up on that so they can get t
on zero solutions is not the way to get there. >> very quickly, harry reid is endorsed by the nra, wayne lapierre campaigned on behalf of harry reid. it's an organization for second amendment advocates. and you can find them, actually, on the other side of the aisle with very explicit nra support. again, we need to get away -- >> and the majority of nra members also support sensible gun legislation. >> it certainly sparks enthusiastic conversation on both sides. maria and amy, thanks again, great to talk to you again both always. >>> i do want to share a light moment from cpac's first day, it was back and forth. the issue of hillary clinton came up and begala, friend of the clintons was asked if she was going to run in 2016. listen to the response. >> i have no idea if she will. i think she's actually going to first, like live a life, write her book, reacquaint herself with the real world having been traveling the world, but i think this is really -- no, not get a facelift, she's not a republican society lady, she's a real woman. >> oh, that apparently did not end the clinton attacks. ye
yesterday with the new york times. all eyes on the senate and harry reid. that's the story this morning from roll call. with the senate judiciary committee now completing its work on a for your gun meters, the majority leader must now determine his strategy for how the chamber will move forward to in response to last year's school shooting. every week yesterday told reporters that he conferred with the chairman of the senate judiciary committee and he said "the and i will sit down to find out what has been reported out of the committee and what we need to do to put together as a base bill to start legislating on the senate floor." details available on roll call. callsl take your phone and you can share your thoughts on our facebook page and you can send us a tweet. bill is joining us from rhode island, independent line. good morning. are you with us? george in florida, republican, good morning. i don't think any campaign should be budgeted. the country, a good majority have already chosen to vote for a welfare check. the democrats and socialists have bought these people's votes. romney had t
lack of majority in the senate which is led by the philosopher harry reid. but they maintained by a large strengthen the house of representatives, losing only about eight seats. and a position of state legislatures were very strong. that position that they built up in 2010, they lost legislatures in maine and minnesota, but by and large can't legislatures that they one in 2010, and had the kind of advantage that they haven't had in state legislatures since the 1920s. so we are 25 states that have governors in both houses of legislature, controlled by republicans. they are not just small states. and 53% of the nation's population versus -- i believe it is 13 states with democratic governors or legislatures, 21% of the nation's population. so let me just leave you with a final number out of the exit poll. the electorate that reelected obama when asked whether government should do more to solve problems or whether government is doing to me things better left to businesses and individuals, 52% government is doing too many things. 43% government should do more. .. [applause] him >>
by democrats, and harry reid is not going to move anything forward. but senator graham says what he'll do is hold up any nominations and wreak havoc. over on the house side, frank wolf, a republican congressman from the commonwealth of virginia, says he has 60 signatures on a document to install a select committee, which will be great because then the select committee would look into what happened. john bolton, who used to be our ambassador to the united nations, says something is not right here. listen. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal and i think it's particularly strange that the people who were there when the attack took place were not made available to congress or others interested in finding out what actually happened that day. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a coverup, that they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal that terrorist groups were prevalent in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of the issue one wa
